These chunky crayons are perfect for little hands. This is another project that is just as fun for parents as it is for kids. All you need for this is broken up crayons, a muffin tin, and an oven. Boom, that’s it! Let’s get started.
First, go through your crayons and take out the broken ones. Next, take off the paper if needed. I used a sharp knife to get the tougher ones off. Break the crayons up into smaller pieces and put the crayons in a mini muffin tin.
I used a silicone star-shaped muffin pan. You can color coordinate your crayons or mix them however you like. If you use a metal muffin tin, you can use cupcake liners if you’d like. I found really great results with the silicone pan.
Preheat the oven to 250 F and bake for 10-20 minutes. Keep a close eye on them while they’re baking. After they’ve melted, remove from the oven and let them cool completely.
With the silicone pan I used, I was just able to wiggle the chunky crayons out of the pan. If you have problems, stick the pan in the freezer for a bit. They should pop right out.
Get some paper out and color until your heart’s content. Oh, and you can also let your kids share in the coloring. My daughter went crazy over these crayons. She loves rainbows and these were perfect for her to make very colorful ones.
